Schlong-Shaped Mushrooms Sprout on East 2nd Street

Posted on: August 29th, 2011 at 10:12 am by

In the aftermath of Hurricane Irene, eagle-eyed Boogie reader L. Dohner discovered some interesting schlong-shaped mushrooms growing in the small park opposite 264 East Second Street (Avenue C).

He sent along photos and the following report:

I found these Red Mushrooms after the storm on Sunday morning near a black fence. Great for bike locking! This is across the street from 264 East 2nd Street. 2nd street at av C.

There are about 100 in this little triangle park, about 8 inches tall, spongy body, and lots of flies. Bright red with a dick head like shape. Looks like more are coming up today.

Dohner believes the erect, phallic fungi to be part of the Phallaceae family, also referred to as “Stinkhorn mushrooms.”
